Gryphon Tea Topaz Cocktail

June 22, 2016

Infusing teas and flavourings is a great way to create your own signature drink. One of our favourite ways to create party-worthy drinks is to mix Gryphon Artisan Teas with 1 or 2 types alcohol, shake them up with ice, strain and serve immediately. When hosting a party, you’d want your food and drinks to be as honest and doable as possible without leaving out some fun – especially when there are more than fifty guests.


When we launched our Mandarin Collection which consists of Artisan Templetree Lotus and Lily of the Field about almost a year ago, we created a couple of mocktail and cocktail recipes for our guests to try and recreate back at home. So here’s one of our favourite using Gryphon Artisan Templetree Lotus. This recipe calls for 1 serving, so double up if you need to. Alternatively, remove alcohol for a Mocktail version – works best both ways! 😉Topaz-Cocktail-Title-Cover
